Is that you Kevin Pritchard?

What’s the difference between Kevin Love & Porzingis? Nothing.. both can’t stay healthy so if we are getting 1 of them we need another quality piece coming back.


You're kidding, right IG?

Love is a much better 3 point shooter. He's also a really good rebounder and one of the better passers in the league. Porzingis is one of the worst rebounders in the league at his size and his passing is meh. Porzingis is basically a tall spot up shooter. Love has 3 elite skills in his shooting, rebounding and outlet passing. Right now Lebron has to grab the rebound for us to initiate a successful fast break. With Love in tow, you greatly increase our frequency.

And for anyone who thinks Love is washed, I'd point to the Blake Griffin revival. Love is just trying to get out of there. He's played well with James before and won a title with him. He might be one of the more realistic acquisitions and he's only under contract two more seasons (when Lebron expires).

So do you think Love was a legitimate star and reason for the 2016 Cavs championship? I always just thought he was an empty stats player.

I don't think K.Love and Blake Griffin's washedness is too comparable. Klove was never particularly athletic ---- Blake has declined and still dunks on people. Klove has declined and limps around the court like an old man, often times. haha. I hope he gets healthy...
Porzingis has some value defensively that Klove doesn't have. I don't think acquiring KP is realistic though. I'd take him if they want to get off his salary for no real asset in return - but Idk how we'd match salaries. I also think Klove and KP are equal shooters... KP has more range

KP looks like he's always worried about another knee injury the way he runs, very gingerly and with little movement of the knee. It's different from how he used to run early in his career. He's obviously injury prone, but if he's that worried about the knees it starts to affect his game. He doesn't box out much, his defense is good in that he's long and he can stretch the court offensively, but really at his price, I don't see why we'd pursue him. Doesn't help that he seems to alwyas have some type of frustration with the team, player or management.

Just PASS.

If you think about what is the worst thing that can happen with Porky considering his knees and that diva tendencies and with that contract, not worth it. Yikes

guy was unhappy as the 2nd fiddle on the mavs, and y'all think he'll be okay with behind AD and Lebron? yeah, no.

lakers need somebody who can setup AD and run the offense when lebron rests, not porzingis

I'd imagine that the Mavs aren't too happy with Porzingis.

Playing with Luka means less and less touches. Any star would be pissed off. While Luka is not Westbrook, he needs to hog the ball less if he wants to avoid being a Westbrook. Porky just happened to be his first victim. So, in a balanced attack scheme, Przy will be a good addition. Its not like Kuz and KCP are better. Lol.

If a player can't stay healthy, he can't help your team.
